Vegan sprinter and bodybuilder Julia Hubbard has won a sponsorship deal from Bodypower - organizers of the largest indoor fitness expo in the world and of events across the globe.
Hubbard has had sporting success over the last few years, with countless high profile wins across several categories.
She also leads Great Britain in the 200m sprint in her veteran's age bracket.
On the rise
Hubbard, who will be attending the Bodypower event held over May 11-13, said she won the sponsorship because competing in multiple sports means she can 'relate to lots of people'
She added: "Also the vegan fitness movement is on the rise so I hope it was also partly the reason!
Speaking about the event, she said: "There's always so much going on - and its always great meeting like-minded people. Having clients competing on the stage is exciting too!"
In the past, veganism has had less exposure at Bodypower, although she suspects things may be different now.
"I've already noticed there's a vegan personal trainer speaking at the event and a few vegan companies are exhibiting. If there are any other vegans coming along, please message me, so we can say hi and get a selfie together.
"The more of us representing and showing interest- the more the Show will offer us in future!"
